Things Always Work Out For Guys Like Us
George Winston

I enjoy spending time Traveling, almost anywhere, but in particular love our National Parks and other locations of natural beauty. I also enjoy early American historical locations. I enjoy mentoring new entrepreneurs and helping them develop a workable business plan, as they prepare to seek funding. More recently I’ve been able to enjoy the very early development of my 22 month old granddaughter.

George´s Bio:

40+ years in healthcare commerce, including sales, management, marketing, education, KOL program development and manufacturing with both major and start-up medical device & pharma companies. This experience spans across several medical devices and pharma product lines for the hospital critical care, CV surgery, and CV anesthesia markets.

Post-corporate retirement experience includes involvement within the angel investment community as investor, entrepreneur, and advisor, with recent experience in successfully shepherding a start-up company’s new technology product through the FDA 510(k) De Novo clearance process.

George has also served as a Kauffman Foundation Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Long Beach City College. This program focused on mentoring new entrepreneurs as they prepared to raise start-up capital through the Innovation-SoCal Fund.
